Valdemoro. Aranjuez. Leganés

We leave taking A-4 toward Cerro de los Angeles, the geometric centre of Spain. Pinto has an interesting old district, out of which the Santo Domingo de Silos Church rises, with a plateresque altarpiece and pulpit. Following our itinerary, we come to Valdemoro, where we can visit the Church of the Assumption, from the XVII century, the Convent of the Clarisas and the Hermitage of Cristo de la Salud, XVIII century.

Taking M-404, we soon come to Ciempozuelos where the church of Santa María Magdalena stands in the plaza. It is from the XVII century and is built from white rock coming from Colmenar de Oreja.

Going toward Aranjuez, we go past Titulcia where the mysterious Moon Cave is found. We change to M-320 and pass through Villaconejos with its melon patches, coming to the Royal Site of Aranjuez through the fertile plains of the Tagus.

Toward the end of the Middle Age, Aranjuez was chosen as a Royal Site. The monuments most appreciated there are the Royal Palace, built of brick and white rock, the Casa del Labrador, a small neo-classic palace with a decor of a mixture of rococo, imperial and Pompey styles. The gardens are French style, full of avenues, flower gardens, sculptures, fountains and rare species of trees brought in by the express desire of Carlos IV.

Besides its monumental beauty, Aranjuez possesses many other treasures. All of Aranjuez, its streets, its plazas and its gardens leave you with a feeling of serenity after having contemplated its marvellous remaining bits of the past.

We continue the itinerary taking the exit to Torregón de Velasco, a village that has a beautiful plaza. Then we come to Torregón de la Calzada, Casarrubuelos, Cubas de la Sagra and Batres, where we can admire the ruins of its medieval castle and walls.

Leaving Griñón, we take local highway M-405 to Leganés, passing through Humanes and Fuenlabrada. There you must see the parish church San Salvador, which has three altarpieces from Churriguera.
